COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Mikkeller’s tribute to the green gold.

Mikkeller er klar med endnu en IPA, der ikke er bange for at leve op til navnet. Humlen er som den skal være: aromatisk, amerikansk og aggressiv, så man ikke er i tvivl om hvad man nyder. For nyde er hvad Green Gold ligger op til. Karamelmaltens sødme og fylde danner en lækker bund, der rammer smagsløgene, inden humleeksplosionen sætter ind, og som rydder op igen, og balancerer det samlede indtryk, så man kun har lyst til én ting, nemlig endnu en tår. De lækre amerikanske humler simcoe, amarillo og cascade giver masser af citrusnoter, men kæler også for din tunge med fersken og grannuancer samt masser af friskhed.

Borresteijn (5205) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - MAY 4, 2011
On tap at Beer Temple. Murky dark amber colour, dense off white head. Aroma of fruity hops, sweet tropical fruits and citrus, pine, oranges, sugar. Flavour is sweet, malty, very fruity, oranges, but also has a firm bitterness, pine, citrusfruits, grapefruit, long bitter hoppy finish. Medium to fullbodied, slick. Very good.

Hazy orange brown. Large, fluffy off white head. Strangely difficult to pick up aroma - some peach was about it. Heavy raw hop flavor - loads of grass, grapefruit rind, and leather. Worth a try, though I found it to be no better or worse than any other mid-range west-coast IPA.

Its not a pretty beer, but if you like tasty hops, it’s a winner. Nice hop/spice/alcohol balance actually.

Case (293) - GERMANY - MAY 1, 2011
Pours a murky dark apricot colour with medium-sized off-white head. Fruity-hoppy aroma with lemon, lots of grapefruit and a bit of sweet malts. Taste is full of pungent hops, grapefruit, oranges, some pine, a bit resinous. Very bitter up front and in the middle with a touch of sweetness towards the end. Leaves a lovely bitter aftertaste. Really loving this one, it’s like eating a ripe grapefruit that alternately hits you with bitterness and a bit of sweetness.

Koyo (251) - SWEDEN - APR 29, 2011
Bottle from Systembolaget. Aroma is sweet and thick with some pine and grass. Taste is quite bitter and medium sweet, very well balanced. It pours a yellow, hazy, colour with a thick white foam. Mouthfeel is thick with the sweetness, rolls over the tounge with a pleasant carbonation. Great beer, balanced and enjoyable.

PatBateman81 (178) - Caserta, ITALY - APR 26, 2011
Bottle 33 cl bought @ Bir & Fud Bottega (Rome, Italy). Hazy intense orange, with ruby reflexes. Nice foam, thick but not long. Aroma of pineapple, leaf, some tobacco, a good piny structure. Medium body, malt not so invasive or sweet; caramel the right. Balanced malt component in the end, just a little weak maybe. Strong pineapple, grapefruit flavor. But this is bitter. So bitter. Really bitter. Listen, we’re talking about other Mikkellers like syrup or something. This is only a step down compared to american hop bombs (Stone, Port Brewing, West Coast IPA in general). Harsh, resinous, long-lasting. It dries mouth and tongue. A very surprising IPA.

lamas (1426) - Washington DC, USA - APR 23, 2011
11.2 oz. bottle. A murky rust/copper pour with a one finger-thick tan head. A slightly perfumed aroma of caramel, grapefruits, a little pineapple, and a touch of bubblegum. Crisp and medium-bodied. A little caramel and some pumpernickel bread upfront in the taste. Lots of grapefruitiness and pepper at the tail end. A bitter and drying finish that lingers. Some warming alcohol throughout. Solid.

raisedfist86 (12) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - APR 23, 2011
Not what I was expecting. An okay pale ale, but nothing about this really stands out for me. The hops are pungent enough. It just lacks the crisp finish I’d want, not to mention the burst of flavor on the tongue or lasting hoppiness I’d prefer in an IPA. The flavor is lasting, but only as bitterness.

screwball (1099) - Motala, SWEDEN - APR 21, 2011
Sample @ Beerexpo, Lkpg. This one is a very robust and strong IPA. Lot´s of hops! Mango and pine showing up in both aroma and flavor. Long bitter aftertaste.

Brix (633) - DENMARK - APR 19, 2011
Tasted 2011-04-18. As ’Green Easter’. Pours hazy, amber with off white head.Harsh hoppy aroma with pineapples, Powerfully bitter taste. Decent, but a tad too harsh for my liking.
